We encourage articles that are both localized (towards a specific popular culture tend, figure or industry) as well as articles that are more global in their outlook (forging links between East Asian popular culture and wider global issues). We look for papers that engage with current as well as emerging issues in popular culture in East Asia, cosplay culture, food culture, kawaii, manga and anime, martial arts, politics, and the complex relationships between nationalism and popular culture. We are interested in multidisciplinary papers (that all come under the sport and leisure, digital media, history, media, fashion, music, material culture and literature. Papers and works on translation studies, as well as cultural history and anthropology will be also welcomed.
Papers needs to be between 5000-6000 words.
Please note that all papers go through a double blind peer review system.
